*PLEASE BE ADVISED THERE ARE CURRENTLY SHORTAGES OF TRAVEL VACCINATIONS*

You will need to check with us well in advance of travel to see whether you may be affected by this.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

You may also need to attend a specialist travel clinic for certain vaccinations, so please ask at the reception desk for details.


To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse - PLEASE NOTE - you will need to access the information above by clicking on the flag which represents your travel destination and by searching the relevant information held you can see what immunisations are required. 

Once you have done this please fill out the questionnaire below and bring this with you when you book your appointment with the nurse.
